The New System

Actually quite a bit more traumatic and time consuming than I expected.

Of course most of that is my fault, since I’m very obsessive about backups and notes.

And I shifted my installation paradigm for this one, sticking with the Microsoft defaults for as long as I could stand them, which is now.

XP Pro, Service Pack 3, all the updates including IE 8 and MP 11.  The only thing proprietary is the network drivers and firewall included with my Asus A8N-E motherboard.

The good news is that it’s looking more and more like a virus or malware since IE was behaving just as badly as my 1.5.0.12 Firefox.  Hopefully by this evening I’ll have a system I recognize and can be productive for you with.
